Re: Plymouth Plus MDM - A Better Display Manager

I guess the question I have is why plymouth? As a minimalist distro, CrunchBang shows the bootup in text mode, and I see that as an advantage. I like the ability to see what starts and if there are error messages, something a boot splash hides in many cases. Not to say that a pretty splash screen isn't cool from an eye candy perspective, but I believe in the KISS principle and that is what CrunchBang excels at. I've done a fair bit of hackery over bootup graphics in the past, but I find I prefer the simplicity of the default text mode. Just my $0.02.


Linux _is_ user-friendly. It is not ignorant-friendly or idiot-friendly.

Re: Plymouth Plus MDM - A Better Display Manager

^ One never needs to explain why they use anything, IMO.  If you like plymouth (or not) no one has any right at all to say anything to you. If they do spew BS, it is just another form of leetism.

BTW, I like the reason why you chose to use plymouth, sounds logical to me

Also, I agree with el_k on lightdm, it does do everything right

Re: Plymouth Plus MDM - A Better Display Manager

Hi, Thanks for the idea. I installed MDM like you suggested and both plymouth and MDM load fine, but i still get the following text between both:

Crunchbang Linux Waldorf Crunchbang tty1
Crunchbang Login:

This is the same as with LightDM and Slim. Any idea on how to get rid of this text?

Thanks!

I love #! more than my own kids. I told them and they sympathized.
